Did runner boots retain the changes made to them or have they reverted back to their old bonuses?

Good thing Jagex was smart enough to give torso str bonus back. It was the only useful thing about it.


yeah i agree. I wouldn't waste 25M to get that str bonus on my back again.

Well Jagex is a company focused on satisfying their customers and to do that, they don't want to offend their customers. There are a lot of obsolete and unbalanced content in the game mostly because of giving what the majority of the players want. For the sake of customer satisfaction, the customers come first before the sake of the product.

I can understand that but they must have had a good reason to tweak the stats on the BA items. They should have stuck with it. They'll never be able to improve Runescape in the way they want if they keep changing their minds on just a few rants. They'll lose the ranters as players but thats good ridance, IMO. They'll always get new players players.

Tweaking is one thing but removing stats is another. I'm not talking about torso I'm talking about all penance armour that had stats removed. I don't see why they found it necessary to remove stats just so they could add something new. If they really wanted to release armour with those benefits they could have made new armour instead of completely changing another set. IMO jagex just got too lazy to make a new set and decided it would be easier to just change an old one.

I enjoy how jagex failed to see how they have messed up some things with this update.

After the update:
FIGHTER Torso had 0 attack bonuses. --Fixed--
RANGER Helmet gives negative range bonus. (Use to give range bonus)
FIGHTER Hat gives 0 attack bonuses. (Use to give slash bonus)

Those are the main bonuses they messed up big time.

Don't forget stab bonus of fighter hat too. My only reason for wanting one but um now no thanks <_<

They took some items that had some niche uses and took those away, making them much worse then what they were even if it was only for only limited uses.

Still missing Fighter Hat's bonuses... :-(
! By the way it had +5 Stab, Slash, AND Crush accuracy. I always had to choose wisely between it and Neitz in duels... :D

Also, why do 45 Defense people not just use Void Melee? ...

Also, like to add that most "Mains" who could not afford use the BCP resorted to the Fighter Torso, so it's not mainly cause of pures.

Oh the updated torso has a
62 to 66 Stab Defence bonus, -40 to -30 Mage Bonus and 0 to +30 Summoning Defence bonus.

And fighter torso obviously hasn't, I mean, who wouldn't want to pk in something with def bonuses equal to an addy chain/plate!

The stat of Slash on the Torso is +4 compared to the rune plate, and is the most common style of combat.

Actually it`s +5 :geek: . Other defences are better, thought.

What about the ranger hat having no range bonus? The fighter hat have no bonus? If they put the str back on the torso they should put the range and melee bonuses back on the ranger and fighter hat

OP doesn't sound like a self-entitled child with this subtitle. Nope, not at all. Posted Image

Although he is a combat pure, so that does explain it.

Why does Jagex keep listening to combat pures in regards to armor? Give them a rag to mop up the constant flowing of tears, and get back to work/laughing at the trolls on the RSOF.

This was a horrible update for the armours, stop believing only pures took hits. While the I don't really care about the torso, the helmets and boots took unnecessarily nerfs.

And no, the 3 prayer points a minute does not make up for that.

With my fighter torso and other gear I have +232 slash defence. In melee void I have around +120. Both set ups have the same max hit (bear in mind this is in answer to why people with 45 defence don't just use melee void).
